The mission of the Master of Public Administration Program at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte is to provide education and training for the public and nonprofit sectors, conduct scholarly and applied research to advance the field of public administration, and serve the community.
MPA students have the option to concentrate their studies in several specialized areas:
Certificates are available to students wanting specialized training within Non-Profit Management, Urban Management & Policy, Emergency Management and Public Finance; but not necessarily interested in pursuing a Masters degree.
The MPA Program is accredited by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs & Administration (NASPAA.) The MPA program and Certificate programs have approximately 100 enrolled graduate students.
